So far at home this season the Canaries have played six games, winning two, drawing two and losing two.

Rovers were unlucky to come away from Reading in midweek empty handed losing 2-1.
So far this season they have won one and lost five.

Team News
Jon Otsemobor will definitely be missing as he`s still recovering from an ankle ligament injury.
Adam Drury and John Kennedy are near to full fitness and may be included.

Rovers are struggling defensively, James Chambers limped off on Tuesday night, Adam Lockwood missed the game with a bad back and Matt Mills was also struggling so missed out on Tuesday.
